So I finally got my watercooling rig up. But of course since the gods of computers has soemthing against me, the new motherboard I got didn't fit in my old case. So now I'm looking for a case that is big enough to hold a Gigabyte P4 Titan 533 of the 845E sereies as well as most of the watercooling setup. If anyone knows of a case that can also hold the heatercore inside(it's about 7 inches by 8 inches by 2 inches) that would be great. Let me know if anyone has any ideas or what not.

How big is big? ( i do not know that motherboard ) 7 x 8 x 2, is that L W H or what? I like the case I have and it might house all your stuff. I am putting a water setup in mine soon. I really like the way it is setup, it is huge. I REALY like the fact that the Motherboard slides out with everything still attached (Video, NIC, Modem, etc,.. ) Give me the size you need and I will measure it.

here is where you can see it.

7 x 8 x 2 is the LWH of the heatercore/radiator I am using. THe mother board is just a full size motherboard, nothing really special about it, just that my old case was designed for a mini. Did you build that case yourself or did you order it from somewhere, and if you ordered it where from and how much?

It was ordered. When I ordered (almost 2 years ago) i really didn't know that much about modding computer cases (yes I did buy it, but modified it a little). I bought it from 3DCOOL.com, but it came with two 92mm blow holes on the side pre-cut. If you are looking for a really solid case, mabey one that already looks good then check out www.3DCOOL.com. They are a good place to get stuff. Other than that it is just an ANTEC case with the front slide down/up face plate. It is a full-server tower. I really like it since all of the Hard Drives (if you use an adaptor to mount them into the CD-ROM bay), and CDROMS and Power Supply are seperate from the rest of the system). It measures (in inches) 24(h)x7.5(w)x17(front to back). These are outside measurements.

Check out that link to see the exact computer case I bought. Read about it carefully. These guys "REALLY" know what they are doing when it comes to cooling down the computer. The pic gives you a good inside view of it. Now looking back, you can buy the origional case and Mod it your self for cheaper. I can't find it yet but I will find out where you can get the plain old case. If you got the money, buy this case, YOU WILL LOVE IT.

Hope any of this helps.
